I've been in the church all my life. Given plenty of time, service, and money. So I decided it was time for them to help me out because I'm unemployed. My parish won't help. Is there a way to get a refund of money donated. If not I'm done.

Thanks Eric
I just woke up from a nap and I feel much less negative and gentle in spirit.

Prayers for you. We have had a family emergency fund in my parish for years. A collection is taken up whenever needed. Its very sustainable.

Hey, I thought we were gonna date and all. sorry And since I only consider men who are faithful, practicing Catholics, how's this supposed to work?

....sorry to hear. Each church has it's own mini-community that decides things. Sorry your's is making a decision like this. I know there are Catholic Churches out there that give support, whether you are a parishioner or not. Don't give up on our Church, just maybe try another nearby parish?

If I leave the pity party. Haha
Just had a momentary lapse of reason. I will not leave a parish because things don't go my way. I'm back to level headedness. I feel like a fool for posting this nonsensical topic. Thanks for your support.

Justin - It isn't "The Church" that has treated you unkindly but the individuals at this particular parish. You live in a large city so there are, I am sure, many many other Catholic churches. Some of them might have a different policy on helping people in need. I hope you can find a parish that is more compatible with your needs.

I've never heard of a church giving refunds but there are lots of things I have not heard of.

I'll remember you in my prayers for the job situation. Hang in there! It will get better.

Iwish I had been there- I have a garden that needs weeding- I could pay you to do it if you knew how...
